    User Requested Player Rankings – Week 2 

    As with last year, instead of automatically ranking every player at every position (like the big sites with the big bucks do :-)), I’ll be ranking all requested players against other requested players. For example, if you have four wide receivers and you’re trying to fill three spots, you just comment with the four names and I’ll rank them against eachother. In essence, this will accomplish the same thing as if you were to scan a complete list of wide receivers for where your four guys rank. I’ll start the list off with a few guys that were on the list last week.

    Here’s a link to the Google Doc spreadsheet for those viewing on mobile devices. Anyways, feel free to start submitting names for me to rank! Just a disclaimer…I’m more likely to put your players on the list faster if you just give me a couple names to compare. When you comment with your entire team, it makes me less likely to get the players listed until the very last minute. (View the rankings after the jump)… (More …)

      Are you really that high on Steve Smith vs. the Pack?

      Thanks.

      • Brandon 2:25 pm on September 14, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I think I moved Steve Smith down a few spots as you were typing this comment. I think as you see me add more top tier receivers to this list, he’ll drop down a bit. As for the other guys, I’ve added them to the list. Wayne is hard to rank this week. He racked up some good stats last week in garbage time and this game should be closer, but he’ll still get plenty of looks I’m sure.

        • Chris 2:34 pm on September 14, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          Appreciate it and fully agree with the whole figuring out where Reggie Wayne should go. Steve Smith is one of those guys that I love but has let me down every year the past three years. Hopefully Cam is what he needed.

    • Lindsey J. 2:25 pm on September 14, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Ben Rothlisberger is my QB & Eli Manning my backup. I really want to pick up Cam Newton (yah, even after just this first game) and drop Eli since I’ll play Rothlisberger for the most part anyway. I see though, you have Eli as number 5 and I know Cam Newton wouldn’t be up there on your list. He’d just be my backup though. Thoughts?

      • Brandon 2:28 pm on September 14, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I just added Cam Newton to the list. He has to have at least more one good game before I can justify ranking him ahead of known quantities. In terms of your situation though, it’s hard for me to advise you drop Eli or Big Ben for Cam. Anyway you can carry three QBs for a week or two to see how Cam does?

          Chicago D/ST @ NO —> thinking of benching CHI and starting Tampa Bay. What do you think about this idea? We have a 14 team league so all the other D/ST’s are gone!

          Team 2 is all beat up!

          Steven Jackson is a game time decision. (boo)

      Rookie question, how can I convince someone in my league to trade with me and take Dwayne Bowe? I never traded before, I don’t know how I could convince anyone to take him.

      • Brandon 4:58 pm on September 14, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        You won’t want to trade him until he has a big game, otherwise you’ll get absolutely no value for him. He could turn it around, you should give him a chance. If there was a huge Chiefs fan in the league though, maybe they’d take him off your hands πŸ™‚

          I think everyone in my league has the KC’s number. If Cassel doesn’t get it together, there is not much hope for Bowe!

        He won’t catch a 70 yard touchdown every week, but he could end up being a decent WR3 fill-in for bye weeks or something.

      • Brandon 10:02 am on September 16, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Got those guys on there. As for Jones and Decker, amazingly they had almost identical stats in week one. Pretty weird. Anyways, Jones has more value at this point as the team is going to start him with Kevin Walter out. That being said, he’s still nothing more than a WR3 if you’re really in need of one.

        Just added those two. I like Santana Moss this week (and would like Bryant if he wasn’t nursing a sore quad or something) but it’s hard to bench Felix Jones who has the chance to score on the ground and through the air (and who will catch a few passes for you.) Good luck!

      • Brandon 11:15 am on September 15, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Just added them. Leaning towards Cadillac and Branch if those were your questions. If it’s a PPR league, then maybe Bess over Branch, but it’s still close.

      Can you add Jeremy Maclin to the WRs list?

      I’m new to fantasy football, haven’t started keeping up with the season, and forgot to make draft picks too :/

      Also, someone is offering to trade Roethlisberger for LeSean McCoy. My current QB is Josh Freeman.

      Any help would be appreciated!

      • Cubis 2:12 pm on September 15, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Apparently he has lots of QBs and I have lots of RBs. He’s willing to trade Big Ben for Jones-Drew or McCoy.

      • Brandon 3:13 pm on September 16, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Hmm, definitely don’t do it for McCoy and even for MJD that isn’t a great deal. Is there someone else in the league who can give you a better quarterback for one of them? It looks like you need to upgrade your WR position pretty badly. I’d focus on that first and roll with Freeman at QB until the right trade comes along. Maybe you can trade MJD or Fred Jackson straight up for top tier wide receiver like Larry Fitzgerald or Roddy White.

      • Brandon 3:14 pm on September 16, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        By the way, any decent wide receivers or quarterbacks on free agency in your league?

          Thanks for the help! I didn’t trade anyone just yet.

          Eric Decker
          Nate Burleson
          David Nelson

          *QB*
          Ryan Fitzpatrick
          Colt McCoy
          Rex Grossman

          I’ll have to look at my league’s rosters, but on the chance that I don’t really want to trade, lol, are any of the free agents good or at least decent? I’ll look into your suggestions πŸ™‚

          • Brandon 4:21 pm on September 20, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            I like Burleson, then Decker and Nelson. You already have Brandon Lloyd, so maybe go Burleson, Nelson, Decker. I’m giving up on Jacoby Ford already this year, even if it seems early. It just seems that the upside of these other guys is at least as high as his.

        Who’s your other quarterback? Can you afford to give up Vick? The trade doesn’t seem great at face value. Maybe ask for a lesser QB as well and give up Stewart in the trade? Something like Vick and Stewart for Forte and Eli Manning.

        Ben Tate if for some reason Arian Foster doesn’t play, but it’s looking more and more likely that he will. Sooo…in that case, go Jordy Nelson, especially if it’s a PPR league. He seems to be on the same page with Aaron Rodgers to start the season and his upside is higher than Starks.

      • Brandon 2:32 pm on September 16, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        It sounds crazy, but Gronkowski might be your man. Is this a PPR league? He’ll be able to eat up chunks of yardage the fastest and is a prime red zone target for arguably the best quarterback in the league. The other guys will probably all end up with 60-70 yards and maybe a score. Seems like something Gronkowski could do!

        Keep paying attention to the Arian Foster situation up until game time. At this point it looks like he’s on track to start and get the bulk of the carries, so that would make him the guy to go with. If there are some question marks going into the game though, I have Beanie Wells ranked the highest of the other guys. Good luck!

        Just added Sproles one spot ahead of Addai. I love Sproles’ versatility in that he can score on kick returns, passes and runs. He might be a slight more risk, but his upside is way higher.

      Cutler was dropped in my league..Would u drop Kolb as backup and pick up Cutler?? I also have Big Ben

      • Brandon 10:34 am on September 18, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Probably not. I think you’re going to find that Kolb is more consistent, while Cutler is liable to put up a 4 INT game here and there.

      Start two: MJD/Fred Jackson/Beanie? I know they’re on the list, but I’m worried they’re limiting/saving MJD for later this year.

      • Brandon 10:42 am on September 18, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        MJD has the most upside of the group, but the toughest match-up. If you want the safer route, you could go Jackson and Beanie.

      Hi I have Nicks and im nervous about him this week, so im thinking about picking up brandon gibson and droping roy williams. what do you think? is there a better option on the rams offense? or should i just hope that nicks plays?

      • Brandon 10:39 am on September 18, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Can you pick up Domenik Hixon? He’ll get the start if Nicks doesn’t play, so you can just wait and see. By the way, Nicks promises that he’ll play, for whatever that’s worth πŸ™‚ If you can’t get Hixon though, then I guess Gibson is your man. But don’t expect him to light the world on fire with Bradford banged up and the fact that he’s not anywhere close to Hakeem Nicks to begin with!

      Could we get Tony Romo on the list? Ed Dickson as well?

      Speaking of Dickson, would he be a smart start over Fred Davis?

      Definitely Meachem this week over Maclin? Meachem is definitely a target for this week, but Maclin could be more of one this week as well–having beast games in the past over Falcons and Vick possibly going wild this week? Downside, he’s been down and out this year.

      • Brandon 10:37 am on September 18, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Yeah it was Maclin’s health and the fact that he wasn’t that effective last week that scared me away from him in week two. If you think this is the week he makes his glorious return though, feel free to start him. Meachem isn’t that much higher than him in my books. At tight end, go with Fred Davis. I’ll add Romo to the list shortly.

      • Brandon 9:01 am on September 19, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        This WAS the week he made his glorious return, so hopefully you started him!

        • joe 6:09 pm on September 19, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          LOL no i didn’t…put Dickson in instead of Davis as well, against your advice, and had a terrible week πŸ˜€

      Im in two fantasy football leagues and i have malcom floyd as my starter in both of them
      in one league i have mike sims walker as my bench and in my other league (who counts return yardages [20 yards per point]) i have erick decker as my reserve.

      who should i start? should i just go with malcom floyd in both of my leagues? thanks for your help!

      • Josh 6:09 pm on September 17, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        oh btw they’re both PPR if that helps

      • Brandon 10:35 am on September 18, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I’d just go with Floyd. If the Chargers have the same success passing on the Patriots (they’ll have to pass a lot too I think) then Floyd should get plenty of looks. Bradford’s injury in St. Louis scares me away from MSW and Decker probably won’t return another kick for a score this week. Good luck!

    • heather 8:12 pm on September 17, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      just curious who to start out of these 4 running backs, i need all the advice i can get. cadillac or steven (depending on if steven is injured still and unable to play, i have both on my roster but i’ll only use one in the starting position on my roster), shonn greene, james starks or willis mcgahee. thank you for any help πŸ™ i’m really stuck on if shonn greene is worth starting or not. for now i have brandon marshall in my wr/rb slot and am going with starks and cadillac/steven for rbs

      • Brandon 10:19 am on September 18, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I have Greene over the others at this point, but he’s always underachieving. I wouldn’t be against you starting McGahee actually, with Moreno most likely out this week. Keep Brandon Marshall in the flex spot, that’s for sure. Good luck!

    • Javier 9:51 pm on September 17, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      2 out of Tolbert, Hightower and Carnell Williams?

      • Brandon 10:16 am on September 18, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I have Tolbert the lowest of them all, as I think the Chargers will have to pass a lot in this game, but a lot of the other analysts still love him. If Steven Jackson plays, it’s easy. If S-Jax sits, I’m going Hightower and Cadillac. But it’s really close between Tolbert and Williams. Good luck either way!

    • Brian 8:10 am on September 18, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Blount or Shonne Green for rb 2? you got em one apart but can jax d really stop the run again like last week against cj2k? thx

      • Brandon 10:14 am on September 18, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I have more faith in Blount rebounding than Greene, who has LT to fight for carries with. They’re so close though, but I still have to go with Blount until Greene can change my mind. Good luck!

          thanks! You think steve smith (car) is for real? esp against the pack? what about branch vs smith?

          • Brandon 10:45 am on September 18, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            I’m gambling that Steve Smith is at least half-way for real! It’ll be a tough match-up tough so we’ll see what he does. There’s no way I start Deion Branch over him, if that’s what you’re asking. You don’t bench a guy the week after he goes over 170 yards and two touchdowns πŸ™‚

      sounds good thanks!

    • JanetJ 11:07 am on September 18, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Hey there!! Is it too late for you to add Tampa Bay D/ST and the Bears? I think they both will have slim pickings today but they are my choices. Thank you!

    • Sona 11:23 am on September 18, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Packers or Texans this week? Also i have 2 wide receivers on questionable list this week. Assuming both play Dez Bryant or Brandon Lloyd?

      • Sona 11:38 am on September 18, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        oh yes, i also have Johnny Knox now, whom to start among all three in flex position?

    I just picked up Chiefs RB/WR Dexter McCluster in a couple leagues. He got nine touches in week one (and it seems that’s about how many the team wants to get him each week) and besides his fumble, ended up with some decent numbers for those of you in PPR leagues. Due to his dual status in Yahoo leagues, he could make a decent bench guy to sub in wherever needed for when you’re in a bye week conundrum.

      Sorry, i may have posted this in the wrong spot earlier……..I have Dallas Clark and Mercedes Lewis. Should I drop Lewis and pick up Fred Davis?

      • Brandon 3:06 pm on September 14, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        At this point I like upside of Davis more than Lewis, so I’d say go for it!

      Brandon – would you drop Jacoby Ford for DMc Jr?

  • Brandon 8:53 am on September 14, 2011 Permalink  

    If you enjoy benefiting off the misfortunes of others, you might consider proposing a trade to an unsuspecting league-mate for some of these buy low candidates via The Hazean.

      Willingness to ruthlessly exploit your friends and plunder their rosters is one of the primary attributes of a good fantasy football manager.
